Cause and Effect Diagram Software

The Cause and Effect diagram introduced by Kaoru Ishikawa in 1968 is a method for analyzing process dispersion. It can help you to dive into a problem and find an effective solution, identify and represent the possible causes for an effect, analyze the complex business problems and successfully solve them.

You can design your Cause and Effect diagram on a paper, but more effective way is to use specific software - ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful Cause and Effect Diagram Software. It helps you create Cause and Effect diagram known also as Fishbone diagram or Ishikawa diagram from templates and examples.

Cause and Effect Diagram Software *

Example 1. Cause and Effect Diagram Software

As a first step of creation Cause and Effect diagram for solving a problem, you need to clearly define an effect, put it as a "head" on your diagram and draw a "fish spine" as a horizontal line. The second step is to brainstorm the possible influencing factors and causes, and represent them as "bones" on a diagram. You can construct a few levels of causes, if needed. As a brainstorming software we recommend to use the ConceptDraw MindMap application.
